Traders Shut down Computer Village in Protest against The Installation of IyalojaTraders Shut down Computer Village in Protest against The Installation of Iyaloja

Traders in the Computer Village, Ikeja, Lagos, on Tuesday shut down activities to protest the planned installation of female and male market leaders “Iyaloja” and “Babaloja” respectively in the hub.

The traders told a correspondent covering the protest that the computer village is an international market that does not need such imposition of Iyaloja or Babaloja.

Mr Wasiu Agbaje, an Information Communication Technology (ICT) Engineer, said that the hub was not like the regular markets where such should be imposed.

Agbaje said that installing such would undermine the hub because there was no relationship between technology and Iyaloja.

“What do the Iyaoloja and Babaloja have to offer? What value are they going to add to the hub? And what technological innovations are they bringing?

He said installing such Iyaloja and Babaloja would contradict what the hub was known for and breach the peace because it was not a regular market.

A software developer, Mr Joseph Efosa, said that such installation would disturb the 25 years of peaceful existence of the hub.
